Follow Pearl, Malti, Bruce & Io
As a being covered by a solid stealth shell both top and bottom, you know firsthand how appearances can be deceiving.
Other beings might look at you and see only what they choose to see.
Hungry beings might see lunch (as in you, plated and served. shudder.).
Lady shelled beings might see a suave solo and single eligible bachelor (hope hope hope).
The large shell-less beings might see cuteness. Or if they are in a hurry – as they so often seem to be – they might not even see you at all.
But there is one thing no one is likely to see about you and that is your secret talent to make yourself taller….much taller.
To do this, all you need is a handy foothold. A nearby fern, vine, fence or even your large shell-less rescue mama’s foot will do perfectly for your first foothold.
Then you can take it from there, climbing so high you become the tallest box turtle in the world!
